1998 993 Cab Oil Leaks


Vehicle Information: Year: 1998; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 40,000 miles;

I have had a burned oil smell since new. Original dealer told me it was an overfill causing it and dismissed it as warranty. Later (around 25,000) after warranty expired, dealer service advised I have three cylinders leaking (don't know if it's at the valve cover, mid barrel or case end. Regasketing is $3000 job. - was wondering if switching to straight mineral based oil would help (since Mobile 1 is pretty slippery)?
